Ladies, you’ve sent us a ton of questions about ketogenic diets ranging from how to keto to who should keto to why keto at all. While we’ve touched on it in other episodes we wanted to bring you The Man – Mr. Mike Mutzel. If you don’t know Mike from his popular podcast and Youtube channel High Intensity Health you’ll want to check him out! A functional medicine practitioner and Masters in Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, Mike takes a very natural, holistic approach to all of his advice – including keto.
In this episode we covered testing – how most people using urine strips are testing their keto state wrong, why ketogenic diets can be hugely beneficial for lowering inflammation and brain health as well as how to use blood glucose monitor to get an idea of how fat adapted you are. Truly loved this last point as we get soooooo many questions about why someone might not be burning as much fat as they’d like or suspect they should be given a low carb, higher fat diet when all the gurus say they should be “fat adapted” by now.
Mike has a great book called The Belly Fat Effect which digs in deep to gut health, hormones and body fat. And again, catch up with him on his site High Intensity Health to learn a ton! And he really is also just the smartest, sweetest guy and we will definitely have him back!
